You can try cleaning the video tape heads. The vcr has 2 different heads. One for audio which is fixed and a drum head for video with 2 heads on it that rotate. The best way to clean them is to take a lint free cloth ad wrap it tightly around your finger. Put some alcohol on the cloth and place it on the drum. Then rotate the drum as you hold your finger against the drum. DO NOT move your finger up and down as you can brake the head off. The other option is to go buy a head cleaning stick. It's a piece of chamie on a plastic tongue depressor. I've cleaned hundreds of them with my finger though. You can clean the whole tape path with the rag. Good Luck.

I have checked cables and different methods of connecting, but the white and red audio out of my PVR appear to have stopped putting out sound.


Go through the setup of the PVR and check the sound settings. It sounds like it's only producing digital audio, that's why it works with HDMI but you want analog, so set the audio to stereo, or try every setting to see what works!

Lock message


Hi!
My DMR-ES10 appears since last month, the same message, and lets myself crazy!


Today, after a desperate try, pressing the buttons, I found the solution:

Simple press the POWER BUTTON and STOP BUTTON of the unit for a few seconds...

VOILá: The UNLOCK message appears in the display and the unit return to operate without the lock message !!!

For Lock again, press the same buttons at same way until appears the Lock message in the display.

This is an undocumented command...

I hope to help you!
